The mayor of Quesnel said he has received “disturbing reports” of residents receiving evacuation alerts from people going door-to-door posing as fire marshals.
“These individuals have been dressed in some form of uniform and wear high-viz vests and are door-knocking in various areas around Quesnel,” Mayor Bob Simpson said in a Facebook post.

He asked residents to report any suspicious activity to RCMP at 250-992-9211.
